Back to the Land
APRIL 4, 2007
I hated painting on location in art school. Nowadays I really love to do it (as long as I can work out of view of passers-by). I don't do these kind of paintings for any particular reason except as fun- I don't try to sell them, I don't put them up in my house or galleries, they just sort of pile up when I get the time to do them. Since it's spring, I thought I'd share some of these paintings here on Drawger.
Oak trees; above Alpine Lake, Marin
Technical note: they are all around 24x 30 or so in size, painted in oil on linen on a french easel in one shot, usually a couple of hours.
